Pinhook Bourbon War 5 Year 2020 Vertical Series


The Vertical Series is a one-time opportunity to follow a group of barrels, all filled within months of each other, as they age from 4 to 12 years. With an additional year of age since the inaugural 4 year-old release, tropical fruit transitions to darker fruit flavors in the 5 year expression, and what was brighter candy is now rich and caramelized; hints of smoke now start to appear for the first time. Every year, Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each connected to a promising young thoroughbred. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof releases to be as unique as the horse on the label. The Rye Vertical Series launched in the spring of 2020.

This straight bourbon whiskey has a lively nose of butterscotch, cinnamon stick, licorice and vanilla. These aromas set the stage for a robust palate of cherry, chocolate, bruleed brown sugar and chicory.
